Kärcher manufactures products for the cleaning market worldwide through a CO2-neutral, sustainable process. The company relies on green electricity and offsets unavoidable emissions by supporting climate protection projects.
The German HR software Personio operates offices with green electricity, where vegetarian and vegan canteens are planned. In addition, the company offers so-called Impact Days to participate in social and ecological projects as a team. So in this case, not only the environmental aspect is in the foreground, but also the social component.
ESG issues and criteria have also reached the management level in the automotive industry. Volvo, for example, has set itself the goal of becoming climate neutral and introducing a circular economy by focusing on resource efficiency and waste avoidance.
Capital management companies such as Allianz Global Investors use ESG criteria to conduct portfolio analyses of investments. For example, Allianz Global Invest manages sustainable and responsible investment funds and enables money to be invested sustainably through these investments.
Microsoft’s software company also sets a good example: the ESG criteria are considered in corporate management, especially in the social area. Microsoft is sustainably committed to human rights and the equality of the LGBTQ+ community and offers its employees internal childcare, among other things.
